Studio Paradiso:formerly named, "Satyricon" based on the film by Italian director, Federico Fellini.
Disclaimer: This is primarily an arts studio, but we rent out the space to photographers for the occasional shoot. Also, from time to time models are hired by me for shoots as photo reference material to inspire PAINTINGS/DRAWINGS. This is a new way of working for me, and has been really helpful in a more efficient way of producing my artworks.
Aside from the above, mostly I am on here to find and befriend like minded models who enjoy, understand and appreciate the more "old fashioned" type of musing: Fine Arts Modeling, as opposed to the modern photography based modality that is so dependent on the dictates of "fashion" and "glamour". Not to be an art snob, because I do enjoy those genres, but it's not my motivation to create.
I enjoy the works of the following: Joel Peter Witkin, James Jean, Egon Scheile, Odd Nerdrum.
